So far I've trained my betta to eat from my finger, jump for his food, and flare on command at a black sharpie. What I can't do yet is get him to follow my finger... I've tried wiggling my finger and hoping to get him to follow it, but he loses interest in it very easily. The sharpie he only associates with the flare trick, so he doesn't follow it. Odd that I got my little guy to do all those more complicated things rather than the simple act of following my finger... XD
I do want to train my little guy to do the little hoop trick (for those that don't know: getting your betta to swim through a hoop is what I'm talking about), but since he doesn't like following my finger, I'm at a loss of how to do it, exactly. Any suggestions?
